History

The Chateau de Bizy, with its beautiful 18th century stables inspired by the grandeur of Versailles, nestles within the setting of a magnificient park in Normandy.



This Royal Chateau was built by France's last King and the Albufera family, descendants of Emperor Napoleon's brothers, who still live here today.
Inside enjoy the richness of the château thanks to wood panelling from the 18th century or tapestries from a serie of royal houses. In each room, find furniture and reminders of the family. To visit and learn the tragic story of the Princess de Lamballe, follow the guide, which speack french and english!


      


The romantic and incredibly green park provides a tranquil contrast to Monet's famous flower gardens in Giverny only 4 km away. During your walk, don't miss the spectacular water staircase, impressive fountain statues and admire in the former French garden statues representing god and goddess from roman mythology. All around the château, grow trees since more of 200 years, like our Catalpa. The Catalpa was struck by lightning during a storm in the late 20th century and has survived in this unusual shape.
                                                                                           

    

To relax and take a break, coffee, fizzy drinks and sweets wait you in our tearoom. Some tables are arranged next to former horse-drawn carriages. There is a collection of six horse-drawn carriages, which dated from the 19th century and were used by the family some years ago!
